AEDM Day 23… Snow Outside my Window

As I was having my morning coffee with the fur boys, fluffy flakes of snow began to glide past the patio doors prompting a poem:

Unknown

SNOW OUTSIDE MY WINDOW

Snowflakes outside my window. Winter's knocking at my door

There's a cozy fire in the hearth. Who could ask for more?

Wind blowing through the rafters makes a melancholy sound

but it really doesn't matter when the family gathers 'round.

A crunchy loaf is baked to enjoy with a savory pot.

The kettle's whistling on the stove. The soup is rich and hot.

Then it's off to bed with a story read and the kids all tucked in tight

for a sleep that's sound and a love that's found in your heart on a wintry night.

    Lovely words.

    We had snow too. It lasted about 10 minutes before the rain took over 🙁

    It’s still too warm here to snow, so I’ll just enjoy yours. That’s a beautiful poem, though, and so is the photo. Very appropriate.

    You asked for us to share our craft room messes, so I did on my blog post.

    Yikes snow, and it begins. You make it sound so beautiful…..and of course it is. Thank you for sharing your lovely thoughts,

    Loved your poem and the photo — just took me right back to the wonderful snow days in my Kentucky childhood. I’m much happier in our non-snow California weather but the memories sure are good! Thanks for stopping by my blog !

    This is such a heart-warming poem! I love it. It makes me feel cozy and safe. We haven’t had any more than a dusting of snow yet, which is unusual. Yesterday was 50 and today is going to be 60! I am looking forward to the kind of day in your poem! Thanks for sharing.
